Research was conducted to determine the distance and amount
of outcrossing between varieties of highly fluorescent annual ryegrass
(Lolium multiflorum Lam.) and low-fluorescing perennial
ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.). Studies were conducted under both
spaced-plant and seed production field conditions.
Fluorescence tests on seed collected from low-fluorescing
perennial ryegrass at successive...
Studies were conducted to determine the variability existing in
repeated fluorescence tests of annual and perennial ryegrass
(Lolium multiflorum and L. perenne, respectively). Sources of
variation considered were within-sample error, among-sample
error, among-germinator error, and among-laboratory error.
These were studied independently and the variation in each was compared
The basic problem of this investigation was to determine if
peer counselors could be effective as group counselors for Educational
Opportunity Program (EOP), freshman students. This effectiveness
would be demonstrated by changes in self concept and
academic adjustment for those students who participated in the group
counseling process. This investigation...
L. C. Dunn (1893-1974) spent most of his scientific career conducting research in
developmental genetics as a member of the Zoology Department at Columbia
University in the City of New York. He had an accomplished scientific career
researching mutations in mice, which earned him respect from other geneticists and
The genus Lichnanthe Burmeister contains eight extant and one
fossil species which are strictly nearctic in distribution. The
subfamily Glaphyrinae, however, is distributed nearly world-wide.
Five species were previously described and three are described as
new herein. All eight extant species are described in detail herein,
synonomies are made current,...
Twenty-eight bean breeding lines and cultivars were classified
for resistance to bean yellow mosaic virus type strain 7634 (BYMV)
and severe strain Gilbert 6 (BYMV-S). 'Great Northern U.I. 31'
(G.N. 31) and breeding lines (S-lines) selected from a cross between
G.N. 31 and O.S.C. 21 were chosen as parents for...
Experiments were conducted under field and greenhouse conditions
to investigate the effects of chlorpropham (isopropyl mchlorocarbanilate)
on vegetative and reproductive development in
Chewings fescue (Festuca rubra L. subsp. commutata Gaud.) and to
determine the time of induction and initiation under natural conditions.
Chewings fescue was found to be very susceptible...

This study examines the interactions between the scientific communities of the
Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL) and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center
(SLAC) in the discovery of the tau lepton by physicist Martin Perl between 1973-
1977. Perl became interested in searching for heavy leptons through positron-electron
collision experiments using the...
